22:26pm: The day is over and the food was had. On the whole, I've had a successful first day of the meat free challenge which I've imposed upon myself.
Badum-tss!!! I'm such a sucker for puns... Sorry I just had to do it. This weekend, I thought I would share a nice and easy egg recipe - ready to be devoured in as little as 10 minutes! Eggs have to be one of my favourite ingredients, and I can't do without them in my kitchen. They are versatile, tasty and full of protein, vitamins and minerals. I remember a time when eggs were put in such a bad light in the media due to its cholesterol content, but these days they seem to be well-liked all around. A paper published in 2005 in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition argued that egg consumption can be beneficial (done in moderation of course), though it may increase the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) in some populations. That being said, more recent research suggests that egg consumption can be beneficial if made part of a balanced diet, and eggs' links with cardiovascular diseases are weak. Taken together, eggs are a good source of energy so you will find that I'll be posting quite a lot of recipes that have eggs in them. If I'm not mistaken, this is the first!
